Oily skin can leave your face looking shiny and greasy. Usually, it is due to pores becoming enlarged and more visible. If you have oily skin, it probably means you are prone to breakouts, blackheads, and acne. 

For anyone with oily skin, your main focus should be to balance the skin's pH and control shine using products that unclog pores while also helping protect the skin.

Skinsider has a range of oily skin products we believe can help skin when it needs it most. With best-sellers from highly-rated K-Beauty brands, and a few exclusives you can only get here, tackle oily skin and say bye-bye to sebum problems with some amazing products.

Oily skincare products have a quite difficult job of protecting and improving skin while also avoiding oil build-up in problem areas.

If you've ever had a cheap moisturiser or cleanser, you'll know what it feels like to have products which begin to feel tacky after a while, or give the sensation there's a layer sitting on top of the skin. And while the typical suggestion most people give will be to use some tea tree oil (which we have great products of), some K-Beauty products provide great results you may not know about.

What makes K-beauty oily skin products different?

With K-Beauty typically in place to help you build a custom skincare routine (remember, you don't have to follow all ten steps), there are three areas of the routine which anyone with oily skin will want to pay particular attention to; cleansing, exfoliating and moisturising.

The reason K-Beauty products can help with oily skin is due to the ingredients used during a routine.

For example, it is common to have oily AND sensitive skin, which would lead you to use a gentler form of exfoliation. If this is true for your skin, have a look at this By Wishtrend 2 Step Gentle Exfoliation Set.

What brands are known for oily skin products?

Some of the brands the Skinsider Family are very passionate about include:

COSRX and Klairs would be two of the best-sellers for helping cleanse and tone oily skin. 

Does Skinsider have vegan-friendly oily skincare products?

Another great thing about K-Beauty products using natural ingredients is that it gives us more vegan products to choose from. There are amazing vegan skincare products to help deal with oily skin, with some of the highest-rated from customers including:

Are you looking to get more vegan-friendly skincare products in your life? We have a great vegan range available here.

I have oily and itchy skin. What should I be using?

It is easy to think that only dry skin leads to irritation, but it is just as common for someone with oily skin to experience itchiness and redness; two things that can become major problems if not dealt with.

You can help combat itchiness and redness by using any of the Benton Aloe products we have in stock. The aloe barbadensis leaf water in their products is great for preventing irritation, especially if you've recently been quite active in exfoliating oily skin.

My skin is oily but appears dull. What products can help?

Dull patches tend to look darker when your skin is oily. Having a foaming wash which can help buff dull areas will help a lot. By Wishtrend Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash is a hard-working powder wash that helps revive dull areas and improve hydration without allowing sebum to interfere.

For those who want to dedicate more time to improving oily skin, some of our wash off masks are a must.

What can I use for oily skin around my T-Zone?

The T-Zone and oily skin are two things that go hand in hand. For those who would say their skin is prone to feeling oily around the nose and forehead as the day goes on, Klairs Daily Skin Hydrating Water  will help a lot with hydration and relief.

We also recommend Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask if you're looking for something which can deal with oily skin while you're sleeping.
